Cologne, Germany —Distributed control system (DCS) technology installed at the new combined-cycle power plant at the Solig Gas Power Co. Ltd. facility in Inner Mongolia is performing balance-of-plant control. The system, supplied by GE Energy , links to a 126-MW GE PG9171E gas turbine controlled by a Mark VI control system. Announcement of the contract and installation was made last week at Power Gen Europe 2006.

A comprehensive equipment and service package, also provided by GE Energy under a separate contract, included gas turbine and long-term supporting services. The DCS controls heat recovery steam generators, the electrical system, and circulating water controls for Inner Mongolia's #1 and #2 units. The control system for unit #1 began commercial operation April 24.

The Solig project is the first gas-powered generation plant in Inner Mongolia. The effort, launched in October 2004, includes two sets of combined-cycle units. Unit #2 is expected to go into operation early in July.
